3D Printer Manufacturer Zortrax To Go Public In Reverse Merger

3D Printer Manufacturer Zortrax To Go Public In Reverse Merger

Zortrax

Zortrax, the Polish 3D printer manufacturer, has signed a reverse merger deal with Corelens, the optical medical firm, that will enable it to be a publicly-listed company on the Polish NewConnect stock exchange.

The deal means that all of Zortrax's assets will be transferred to Corelens which will issue 97 percent of its shares to Zortrax shareholders in exchange. This will enable Zortrax to expand on the medical applications of its systems and after the merger it will have a value of $39.6 million.

Zortrax Product Lines

Based in Olsztyn, Poland, the company specializes in manufacturing desktop 3D printers as well as offering a variety of post-processing, printing materials and software solutions to its customers. The company markets its products through a network of 130 partners in 90 countries to service industries ranging from automotive design and architecture to the textiles sector.

An example of a recent application of the firm's 3D printing technology is the German company Lightning Cosplay which used Zortrax's M200 printer systems to fabricate video-game inspired cosplay outfits. The company has also developed a range of bio-compatible resins (under the Inkspire label) that is aimed at the growing popularity of medical desktop 3D printing.

Zortrax Reverse Merger

In order to capitalize on the growth in demand for these type of applications (and to enhance the medical compatibility of its printers) the company has opted to merge with the clinical firm Corelens as a good strategic fit. As an added benefit it could also raise a significant funding by floating its shares on the stock exchange, depending on the company's future financial results and the confidence of its investors.

The reverse merger will result in Corelens issuing Zortrax's investors with approximately 111,937,500 shares which represent the equivalent of 97 percent of the company. Fifteen new Corelens shares will be issued in exchange for each Zortrax share to the company's existing shareholders so that they retain the same percentage of ownership in the new company that they had before.

Recent Reverse Mergers From NYSE to Turner Advertising Company

Recent Reverse Mergers From NYSE to Turner Advertising Company

NYSEgroup

When American companies decide to go public, they have to go through an Initial Public Offering (or IPO). This is a lengthy and expensive process that takes months, perhaps longer than a year. Audits, investigations, legal fees and many other factors play into an IPO and not everyone is willing to undergo this. That’s when reverse mergers come into play: A reverse merger is a process where a private company acquires a publicly-traded company to bypass issuing an IPO and becoming a public company faster. There are a lot of companies that have used this method, both successful and not.

NYSE

The most well-known case of a reverse merger happened on December 6, 2015. The New York Stock Exchange (or NYSE), a business with over 200 years’ worth of history, decided to merge with Archipelago Holdings, an electronic trading company. The sole objective of this merger was for the NYSE to become a public traded company. Four months later, on March 2016, NYSE became the NYSE group and Archipelago Exchange turned into its subsidiary under the name NYSE Arca.

This reverse merger proved so successful than less than a year later the NYSE group completed another merger, this time with Euronext. The result was NYSE Euronext, a transatlantic stock exchange, the first of its kind.
